Dorothy Lowe led us through a "Scavenger Hunt".  Four gals were sent to four different locations to find items that could be used in our sewing rooms.  They shopped at an Office Supply, Hardware, Dollar Store and Goodwill..  We had great fun with all the items they came back with.

2012 Challenge Quilts

At tonight's April 30th meeting, all the gals who took up the challenge of "Pure Michigan" brought in their projects for the members to vote on.  A total of 44 kits containing the fabric piece were sold but only 12 ladies finished this challenge.  Everyone who completed this task did a great job and it was hard for the members to vote for only one in each of the two categories: those who have won before, and those who have not.

Our thanks to Marj Hobe and Debbie Barrett for putting together this years Challenge!

The ladies that took Cathey Newhouse's Ricky Timm's Kaleidoscope workshop last month brought in their finished wall hangings.  Everyone started out by making strip stratas to cut into different triangles and then sewed them back together, not knowing how they would turn out.  They all turned out  to be beautiful!

President - Cheryl Zombo
President Elect - Pat Abersold
Treasurer - Lyn Compu
